Founder & Clinical Director

South Austin Counseling Services, PC, (SACS), originally founded in 1998 by Tammie D. Martin, M.Ed., LPC-S., is a multidisciplinary counseling group of mental health professionals serving southern Travis county. After more than a decade of private practice in south Austin, Tammie became aware of the need for exceptional mental health services provided in a calm, client-centered environment. She has assembled an outstanding group of mental health professionals to provide care and support with an emphasis on superior customer service.

"Together, we have worked successfully with thousands of children, adolescents, and adults. We draw on a variety of approaches to find what is most helpful for each client. Together with each client, we focus on personal strengths to overcome weaknesses and to help clients achieve their goals." 

Tammie began her career as a school counselor working with children, adolescents, and their families. For the past 19.5 years, she has served children, teens, families and adults from a variety of backgrounds in her private practice. Tammie is the mother of two sons. One of her sons lives in Austin with his wife and two beautiful children. One died tragically in a drowning accident in Denver, Colorado, in August 2013, less than one month after his 26th birthday. She has been married for 36 years. Both her personal and work experiences have taught her that all individuals are capable of healing and achieving their potential.

"I believe that people who seek therapy are individuals who have the courage to face life's challenges, the strength to seek assistance, and the wisdom to actively develop skills for healthy living." - Tammie D. Martin, LPC-S
